Intellectual control systems based on digital technologies are being actively introduced in the power industry, and resolutions of the Russian Government on renewable energy sources are being implemented. For our part, we are ready to become a platform for a dialogue with interested parties on introduction of advanced technologies in modern production, solar and other renewable energy sources. In addition, we can become a base for training specialists who will have access from the manufacturer to carry out installation work on this equipment.”
